Namu Baru Inc.
Lovely & Unusual Mala Prayer Beads.

Namu Baru Inc. was founded by owner Chris Overholt while living & working in Nepal and Korea and travelling in India in 1996 to 1998. He was drawn to Nepali & Indian Malas and traditional arts and the beautiful Korean Cedar Malas, ceramics, incense and other items. Over the years we have carried many different arts and crafts, however our Mala Beads have always been a popular item. Chris found on his trips to Asia that there were many more Malas available than seen in the US, so we decided to change our focus to Mala Beads.

Our vision is to have the largest selection of Malas available in one place and definitely the largest selection of unusual Mala Beads. We carry not only common Malas, but many unique and hard to find Malas & Wrist Malas, such as Dragon Blood Wood, Purpleheart Wood, Yew Wood, Gold Sheen Obsidian and the largest selection of fragrant wood such as Cedar, Cypress and Verawood. We also carry a wider range of styles, stretchy 108 Malas, Knotted 108 Malas and varying sizes such as 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm and even up to 25mm beads. . We currently have about 50 different Wrist & 108 Malas that no other supplier carries. We have also been told that our quality is really nice.
